  1. I have sent two emails regarding a pervious product from this company without reply. I would be very hesitant buying from them as a result.

  2. Hi Max,
    Getting lots of email currently, trying to get thru them as quickly as possible..!

    Edit: Can’t seem to locate any mail from a Max, what name did you use for the email?

  3. I wouldn’t be hesitant to buy from this dev. They’ve been around for a while. However, since I exclusively use my iPad for music these days, some iOS love would be great. Technobox2 is awesome but needs an update. Thanks and Happy New Year!

  4. Very happy with the ABL3 to be honest (next to the TB, TT, ML (1 of the 35) and X0X that I have as hardware) sounds great.

  5. price?

    their website seem a bit clunky…won’t go to the purchase page to find out the price.

    …oh hang on..their website finally woke up
    GBP 76.50 (including tax/VAT)

  6. I’ve got the RE & it sounds very nice, good emulator. Only thing, while Reasons main sequencer is running, you cannot stop / start the ABL3.

  7. This sounds great, but I’ve never liked the TB style of step sequencing. It would be nice to have the option to have a nice, piano roll style, linear, scrolling, 64 step sequencer (with the number of steps editable) that had two lanes underneath if for dialing in slide and accent per step. I get that there are the old school guys out there that enjoy the experience of the original machine’s sequencer, and I also realize that this could be accomplished within the DAW, but it would be cool to have an expanding window from the plugin itself that made it quick and easy to sequence in this manner. How about overdrive/saturation/distortion with mix controls that could be sequenced to accent the distortion on different step. A granular engine would be cool for “stuttering” steps as well. I guess what I have in mind here is ways to do those awesomely complex acid lines that Infected Mushroom used to do.
